In the field of medicine, good ethics are extremely important. This should be a given, but sadly, we all know the stories of businesses and practices who choose otherwise. There are many reasons why practicing good ethics is important, but most of all, it is because human lives are at the center of every kind of medical service.
If a medical practice does not have high standards in its medical, as well as business ethics, we believe they cannot genuinely do good for others. You’re probably familiar with the Hippocratic Oath which includes the phrase “Do no harm.” Our doctors and medical staff, take this seriously. With every decision we make, we must think about the good of our patients.
Obviously, like any person, no doctor is perfect. But we are sad to hear when doctors or medical staff choose to lower their standards of care and management, resulting in problems for patients. It can result in a bad reputation for their field of medicine too. In our opinion, there is a huge difference in human error and bad practices. Sadly, another pain management practice in our area was raided and shut down just last month for charges of the latter.
We are concerned by this situation. But it also makes us more assured of the values and mission of our own practice. At Kentucky Pain Associates, we want it to be clear how committed we are to upholding the law and seeking to understand every policy that affects our work and our patients. We want this post to be much more than a sales piece. We’re not just trying to recruit new patients. We want EVERY current or potential patient of ANY kind of pain management treatment to understand the importance of their quality of care and the need to choose the best practice from the beginning. It directly affects your health and your future.
Make the Best Choice in Your Care at the Start
If you need pain management, you should always start your treatment with a practice that will consistently provide the service you need. It will be better for you if you don’t go somewhere that doesn’t offer comprehensive care, so that you aren’t forced in the middle of treatment to search elsewhere for services your practice doesn’t offer. For instance, we offer a wide variety of services including an in-house pharmacy and we also partner with many other medical providers.– as well as attorneys if you’re injury involves a lawsuit. That means we can offer you a streamlined process of care; from initial evaluation to ongoing treatment, including the use of specialists, and even supporting your potential personal injury case.
You also want to start your care with a practice with a good reputation and reliable communication, so that it’s unlikely your care will ever be interrupted. A news article covering the closed practice we mentioned also shared a quote from one of their former patients and how the raid and shut down instantly affected people like her.
“Friess had an issue with her prescription and needed to get it fixed on Tuesday, and now she’s in a bind. ‘We are leaving for Michigan tomorrow and I don’t know how to get this filled,’ Friess said.”
All in all, avoid unnecessary upheaval, especially while you are healing from an injury.
We also want to encourage every current or potential patient of pain management to really get to know the practice they’re considering, so that you can avoid problems like the patient above!
